, the rhetoric of rush limbaugh. >> the people who are the closest and bear the most striking resemble to the policies of nazis is the democratic party. >> as a republican senator now condemns sarah palin calling her nuts. >> and hillary clinton's sharp words. >> you want me to tell you what my husband thinks? my husband is not the secretary of state, i am. >> call it a case of lost in translation. all that and more this hour on msnbc. wow. big moments there. good afternoon to you. i'm tamron hall live in new york. >> i'm david shuster live in washington. tamron, nothing stirs voter passions quite like a villain. in our big picture this hour, president obama and his health care reform supporters are trying to put the spotlight on what they call the evils of the for-profit health insurance industry. today at a town hall in new hampshire mr. obama painted the industry in the most sinister fashion to date. >> because right now we have a health care system that too often works better for the insurance industry than it does for the american people. i don't believe anyone should be in charge
is here. what do you want from these town halls? what is the point? you will hear from rush limbaugh coming up. there is a new information regarding pakistani terrorists. henry kissinger goes on the record. the town hall process continues. >> [unintelligible] >> it triples premiums. >> stand up and fight. we woke vote -- we will vote you out. [unintelligible] [applause] >> it got a little bit rough these days. next question. he did not answer it. he taught in circles. >> people come to town meetings who have objections. i emphasize that they may not be representative of america. their views have to be taken into account. >> there is some disagreement. >> how are we supposed trust you? is there an option to say no to this bill? >> it is not about health care reform or insurance reform. it is about government control. >> i charge you with usurping authority not granted to you as a u.s. senator. >greta: houston, texas a councilwoman answers a cell phone while a cancer survivor asks her a question. >> if you're conscious allows you, what are you doing for america -- >> seriously, really.
medicine. greta: congressman, thank you, sir. coming up, rush limbaugh calls somebody a clown. do you know who it is? and take a look at this video. this is what a democratic congressman just based at a town hall. the congressman goes on the record next -- when a congressman -- what a congressman just faced at a town hall. have you smelled this chair? or these curtains? you've gotta wash this whole room! are you kidding? wash it?! let's wash it with febreze! whoa! [ sniffs ] hey mrs. weber. [ sniffs ] it smells nice in here. i like to keep things fresh. [ male announcer ] for all the things that you can't wash, wash it with febreze. febreze now comes in two fresh new scents -- downy april fresh and gain apple mango tango. that's a-- tiny netbook. yeah, it's-- good-looking, lightweight. generally awesome. and you could just-- go online, video-chat with my cousin. this is un-- under $200. are you some kind of-- mind reader, visionary ? no, i have them. huh. the new lightweight hp mini netbook with windows and america's largest and most-reliable 3g network built in. only 199.99 with mobile br
is standing by to go on the record. greta: rush limbaugh is not happy about it. rush limbaugh in his own words, next. and senator tom daschle got bumped from the cabinet for tax problems, so why is he often at the white house with president obama? we will tell you what senator daschle says, and is something of a little bit too cozy going on? and our national debt is spiralling out of control, and getting worse by the second, literally exploding, but there is something you do not know. caution. your head might explode when we tell you this, but, first, we are not surprised president obama needs a vacation. the town hall meetings. >> we could have a high school debating team come up with a better bill than this in 30 days. >> legislation is going to cost more than $1 trillion. how are we going to afford that? >> might out of pocket costs -- my out-of-pocket costs. greta: councilwoman maxine waters just had a town hall, and there was some name-calling. >> we are going to do everything that we can to organize -- neanderthals ççwe are going to say to prest obama, "we want you to use every weapo
angry mobs. >> reporter: some on display get stoked by the provocative megaphones of rush limbaugh who went so far as accusing democrats of wanting to soernlize medicine of nazi germany. >> the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika logo. >> reporter: to encourage attend, conservative organizers acknowledge they sent e-mail alerts to members but argue the anger is real. >> i think that the politicians should be careful about so easily dismissing this many people showing up and participating in the process. >> reporter: virginia democrat jim moran expects to get an earful. >> funny to be opposed. i don't think it's fine to come in with the objective of disrupting the town hall meetings. >> reporter: for "today," kelly o'donnell, nbc news, washington. >>> for more on the political impact of all of this let's turn to john horowitz, chief washington kornt for cnbc. john, good morning. >> hey, jenna. >> with all the shoving and yells at all the town halls it's hard to get a sense of which side is being heard. how big of an impact will this have on congress when they return
rush limbaugh, god and the facts, how do you see the conservative movement as a whole being able to communicate our message effectively to the american people as a whole and kind of the middle, non-politically elite class when we have such an establishment of media and like showmanship up against us where they twist our words and we can hardly combat that? >> let me say first of all that i was active as a candidate during the rise of reagan. then i was a congressman for the last two years through the presidential campaign of '80 and i serveed with him for eight year necessary congress when he was president. and we had -- you could argue we had a harder time because we didn't have rush limbaugh or fox news or hannity or the internet. there was actually probably greater net monopoly by abc, nbc, cbs, "new york times" in that era than there is today. i have two practical pieces of advice for you. the first is sheer repetition. i mean, if you took all e-mail addresses in this room, collectively you probably represent 60 or 100 or 200,000 people. you would be startled how many people
of rush limbaugh whose website compares the reform supporters to nazis. a conservative group that's backing the protest insists the anti-reform movement is there. how do you respobd to the charge that this is all orchestrated and artificial if it's coming from talk show hosts and websites? >> reporter: if that were the case, you wouldn't see the massive turnout. the average person is at work when rush limbaugh is on the radio. >> reporter: out of nowhere, a bystander listening in came up to us to say ditto. >> thank you very much. >> you happen to agree with this gentleman? >> i do. >> reporter: democrats are flexing their grassroots. the former obama volunteers are back in campaign mode. >> we have folks who are anxious about change who love to play the fear card. >> reporter: it's about facts not fear. but time and again, he falsely compared democratic health care proposals to a canadian style universal system. >> the ones coming out the house are not canadian style. you know that? >> universal health care in any way, shape, or form is a bad notion. >> reporter: as for senator j
at these town hall meetings. rush limbaugh calling them nazis and now nancy's calling these protesters un-american. what a colossal mess. we had the poll last week saying obama washington is divisive. it's just this is a mess. what do you do if you're inside the white house? how do you call a time-out and say enough already? >> i don't know how you do it, joe. joe, i'm afraid that all the beginning of the obama a administration, you are down there on the mall that's thousands and thousands of people that air of good feeling and national unity and the belief that obama may just be that agent of change that can bring us together i'm afraid that has all dissipated and is all but gone. he's not down to bush levels but he's down to the point where he about won the election but it is a much more divisive situation. this is one of the ugliest debates i've ever seen. >> it is. it's ugly. you know, mika, we had said this before, several months ago, that every president over the past 16 years, 17 years, said they're going to change washington. bill clinton was going to bring us all together. divisi
, president obama. it is against everything he is trying to do. you loud mouths like rush limbaugh, sean hannity, all these other folks that you listen to daily, even my good friend joe scarborough, it is ridiculous. all you are trying to do is disrupt something a needs to be done for all people. not just your people and the people you e-mail and try to get something done to disrupt something. host: let's hear from our guest. guest: we have been opposing big government for 25 years. doesn't matter who is proposing it. we proposed many of george bush's policies that were encroachments into people's lives. we opposed bill clinton's tax hikes. we opposed george bush role one's tax hikes. it has nothing to do with president obama. it has to do with healthcare reform going in the wrong direction. we've got a lot of ideas and none of them is it the current legislation and we think it takes it entirely in the wrong direction so we are opposed to the policy. host: how many members does freedomworks claim? >> we have over 700,000 members that we have built up the last 25 years. host: free to jo
! greta: one person says that it is less an opposition and more like astroturf, and rush limbaugh does not like it. >> i find itç interesting that the democrats are starting to refer to these towncar meetings as unruly mobs, we cannot promise security -- we are referring to these town hall meetings as unruly mobs. no, these are citizens. what these democrats are accusing you of doing it at these town-hall meetings is exactly what obama taught people to do. heç is the community agitator. he is the community organizer. he is the guy who taught people to show up at events over and over again and read people up, tear them down, disrupt them, and make sure it does not happen, and now, it is happening to them, it is not a ginned up, is genuine. -- not gin up. it is genuine. -- not ginned up. >> i will answer any questions they have. if they want to come over to the white house and answered line by line what is going on, i will be happy to do that. greta: but is president obama even going to read this bill? listen closely to press secretary robert gibbs. >> will be president read the enti
senator called the protesters un-american. she retracted that. rush limbaugh went on a long speech during his radio show where he compared democrats to nazis. he compared the president to hitler. i am wondering if the president has seen any of this. the nazi imagery has been condemned by jewish groups but i'm wondering if he feels anything about this. >> i think he has seen news reports. i don't know whether it is written or cable reports. regardless of where we are and the differences we have on an issue as important as health care, i know the president believes strongly that we can discuss these issues without personally maligning the person we are discussing this issue with. we want to do so in a way that respects the dignity of each individual. i think anytime you make references to what happened in germany in the '30's and 40's, i think you are talking about an event that has no equivalent. anytime anyone ventures to compare anything to that, they are on thin ice. it is best not deployed. we can have a discussion in our democracy about where we want to go and why or why not we want t
limbaugh and sean hannity and george bush are at greater risk of assassination van barack obama. >> guest: as a fun part of the book. in the last chapter i point out i wouldn't have mentioned it if they haven't brought it up so much other ad campaign you keep hearing about this unique rest of, is that being assassinated because he is black in and this is unlike any other president or any other presidential candidate in the call in for a special secret service protection and article about i'm so worried review it and there was some liberal in britain sank in the is elected he will be assassinated so i wouldn't have mentioned if they haven't been dangling the big red tape in front of me but in point of fact pretty much every presidential assassination or attempted assassination in the history of america was committed by a liberal. some version have entered his communist palestinian extremists and there are a couple who didn't particularly have politics someone include john wilkes booth in that and john hinckley, but envelopes with casey was an actor. he was being hit a piece maugre in and t
hannity, rush limbaugh. they don't have the stature they once had. they don't stant stand with anything. they haven't come out with their health care plan. sarah palin is looking to be the republican candidate for president next time around. for many republicans that's a nightmare because she is a loose cannon. so they have a republican party that really is looking for issues, looking for ways of reasserting themselves. a defeat on health care would be a great way of giving the obama administration a black eye. they are not going to be able to do that. again, 51 votes is all the democrats need to get health care or a significant part of health care through the senate this fall. >> secretary rice, i want to bring in jon hillsenrath, my co-host. i don't know if i should call you professor or secretary or professor secretary rice. >> your highness will be fine. >> the job market, isn't this a political impediment for president obama right now? it seems to me he's going to have a challenge in the months ahead making his argument as long as the unemployment rate is in the nine plus percent r
and pests need to be kept away, and i mean no disrespect to rush limbaugh or sarah palin. it is up to us to make this president do what he promised us he would do. he is not just going to get in there and do it. we have got to force his hand to give us the things he promised on this beach. there are a lot of people around him that do politics the old way, back when i did not know what a laptop was, because of the cut of their suit or how much money they have, they think that equals power, and it does not. power is with the people, and the people in this room. we elected a lot of congress people. we elected a lot of centaurs. hello mr. franken from minnesota. it is up to us to keep the pressure on. i cannot name the number of chiefs of staff that call my office and say this is a tough vote for us. we are in a marginal seat and we have to make sure we do not get too crazy. it is going to be a tough election. no shit. we were there when you got elected the first time. remember that e-mail's and the labor unions and young people? we will be there again, but you have to perform. you will have
limbaugh and has the radio host, surprise, surprise, fighting back. what is up? >> what is up? nothing like a good hip-hop battle, is there? jay-z is in a new one now with bill o'reilly and rush limbaugh. the new song comes out next friday. he says it want black versus white, my man, please tell bill owl reilly to fall back and 2010 and that is mild dish but he knows who not to attack or not to retort because the man said had a perpendicular response that requires ear must haves for the kitty, i quote. i remind jay-z it is president obama who once mandated superstition. what? what? no magic negro stuff? what is going on? you're never going to get who might have been a weed smoker among the small pharmacies worth of drugs found, the police -- by the police in neverland mansion, multiple bags of marijuana plus rolling papers. it can't be certain michael jackson himself was toking but if he was, why was wasn't he getting stoned to go to sleep instead of taking the cocktail of prescriptions to get to sleep? lesson for the kids. >> if you're looking for a pharmaceutical combination for sleep and
limbaugh. this guy in miami beach is blaming president obama for the state of his job? he should be blaming bush. bush was in office eight years. z no are a result much 12 years of republicans taking jobs to other countries. >> you talked about folks who have stopped looking for jobs. >> out sources has continued over the years. there's also jobs that are in sourced there is a little bit of a balance. in terms of the stats. you are counted as unemployed if you are actively looking. if you've stopped looking, then you become the discouraged worker and you drop off the rolls. i think it is best to look at the general trend on the unemployment rate. we are seeing some of the worst unemployment we've had since the depression. host: in the hartford current, they have a map of the u.s. this is not seasonally adjusted. the states in white have unemployment rate below 8%. in light orange social security 8-10%. the states in dark orange, the unemployment rate is above 15%. can you explain why it seems more people are out of work along the coasts? >> part has to do with the real estate bubble we had.
to knock down the other side. >> conservative radio talk-show host rush limbaugh says the white house is "looking for tattletales, snitches, and informants." the white house -- republicans point to a new "the wall street journal" and abc poll where people were asked about obama's health care plan. to 46% say it is a good idea. 42% say it is a bad idea. we just got a letter that the republican senator john cornyn sent to president obama. he says he has never been aware of any american president asking american citizens to report fellow citizens for anything deemed fishy. he wants to know what the white house is going to do and what action they intend to take against citizens reported to engaging in fishy speech. there is a lot of back-and- forth. martha: thank you. trace: check out this picture. it looks like a pretty normal journalist, right? she works in sueudan. something you see in this picture is causing riots in the streets. the astounding punishment and her dramatic story in three minutes. having my identity stolen has taken more than money from me. it's taken my time. time that
it no better than rush limbaugh with all of this nonsense. that's just hogwash. >> governor -- >> all the republicans have made this stuff up, week after week you make this up. it's nonsense. >> governor -- >> i can explain it to you, if you would like to. >> i can explain it to you, but you won't listen. >> because there's nothing -- you are making stuff up. >> you're making it up. it's a bad product. you've got a bad product. >> this bill works and you guys are -- >> you're attacking everybody. >> you guys are in the insurance industry. that's the problem. >> the republicans are supporting the insurance industry. democrats are trying to support the american people. that's how how it is. >> the house bill will get a lot of heat because it's on paper. people can point to it. that's not going to become law. so why hasn't the president come out, will he eventually say, look, when this goes to committee, to conference, when it's put together by the house and senate, this is central, this will become law in my own personal view. why hasn't he done that? >> i think he is doing that. >> cle
side like rush limbaugh, god, and the facts, but -- but even with all that, how do you see the -- the conservative movement as a whole being able to communicate our message effectively to the american people as a whole and kind of the middle, nonpolitically elite class when we have such an establishment of media and, like, showmanship up against us where they twist our words and just sell lies all day that we can hardly combat? >> well, let me say, first of all, that i was active as a candidate during the rise of reagan and then i was a congressman for the last two years through the presidential campaign of 1980, and then i served with him for eight years in the congress when he was president. and we had -- you could argue that we had a harder time because we didn't have limbaugh, we didn't have fox news, we didn't have hannity, we didn't have the internet and so there was actually probably a greater net monopoly by abc, nbc, cbs, "the new york times" in that era than there is today. i have two practical pieces of advice for you. the first is sheer repetition. i mean, if yo
that the republican tactics are going to backfire. when people hear rush limbaugh comparing the president of the united states to adolf hitler, the democratic party to the nazi party, when they see these kind of tactics going on, i think that's only in the end going to build support for what the president wants to do. >> house minority leader john boehner says the democrats are quote in denial instead of acknowledging the widespread. if we're dismissing these and if democrats are dismissing these questions about health care reform and how much it's going to cost that it could backfire on them? >> no one's dismissing the questions. everybody's willing to answer the questions. the senate finance committee's working very hard on this. the senate health and education committee has already done this. but you can't get any progress on this, at least if you're on the other side, by just standing there and screaming or by trying to flood these meetings and making it impossible to hold them. when you do this, all you're doing is i think assembling a whole bunch of joe the plumbers, the media's goi
's being orchestrated by the republican party's other than like fox news and people like rush limbaugh. >> do you know that or do you just believe that? >> this is obvious. >> how is it obvious? >> every day -- fox doesn't tell people you have to do this or that. >> but -- >> but they are putting out the message to the people the birth conspiracy -- >> what does that have to do with health care? >> all of these people are coming together and a coalition of pranks who have created this. >> what did we learn in civil protest? we learned it from you guys. >> what is going on here is the republican party is losing control of its own base. >> oh, please! come on! >> the republican party have all of these different lpts fighting about control of the party. >> you people on the left have lost control of the people what they care about. >> let me ask both of you a question. i disagree. i think everybody understands what people care about which they feel like they want work in a fair system and their voice can be heard and basically is there a level playing field. whether it's on et left or the
rush limbaugh's attention. >> it's becoming cool to make fun of obama. >> reporter: maybe not quite so much in new york city. >> yucky. >> extremely disturbing. >> stupid. >> childish. >> whether you like the guy or not, you don't do that to anybody. >> shame on them. >> reporter: shame doesn't seem to be inhibiting critics. >> bravo, mr. president. bravo. >> reporter: the white house had no comment on the joker image. but what do the joker and socialism have to do with one another any way? robert dockerty points out that the joker supports anarchy. >> the only sensible way to live in this world is without rules. >> reporter: critics counter the president and the joker tend to give away money. to cash in, the website "hero builders" plans to sell an obama joker action figure for 50 bucks apiece. but for some, the image is down right disturbing. >> i think i do have a problem with the white face. >> reporter: back when president bush was in office, he got the joker treatment. so did hillary clinton. but when it comes to the current president -- >> it's a right wing spin, disgraceful and
. it was included in the bill beez these two wanted it. then thed are cal right, sarah palin, rush limbaugh, others, even charles grassley, says we're pulling the plug on grandma and calling it a death panel? it was a republican idea. >> and the congressman distanced himself from that whole idea, but what does the president need to do? i mean, is there one thing that he could offer here that the republicans would sign on board? >> thank you. let me give you two. talking about equalizing the tax treatment between people that buy their insurance directly from an insurer and people that get insurance directly from their employers. that's a reasonable position that the president should be willing to talk about, but he criticized john mccain in the presidential election and the unions are against it so he won't talk about it. medical malpractice reform is another commonsense solution. i would say to the president you have an opportunity to get something bipartisan here but you've got to walk away from the left side of your party. he's never been willing to do that. >> paul, i want to show you this nbc n
on republicans, limbaugh. go ahead. caller: my senator, he did call the house and invited me in on a town hall meeting. he must know i'm a democrat. he was only calling on people for their comments. i was thinking about it while i was on the phone. he's saying all this stuff happening. like the other caller earlier said, there's really not a bill. i felt like he was giving out misunderstood to all of us. it is good that he called but i didn't get to comment. i didn't like the fact that he was giving his opinions rather than listening to any questions. host: how many questions did he take in caller: it went about 45 minutes. he just talked to us rather than listening to what we had to say. host: some people had comments. they were telling him about situations they were going through. thanks for calling in. >> people are either eligible for medicaid another 800-0000 are many that have healthcare. you are really looking at about 8 million people. that's a question you can have. you know right there they aren't telling you the truth. jo they don't cover the issue at these hearings. i paid 22 of t
stupid. we can talk with the other fat one, that rush limbaugh, and not to mention mostly all the people that get up there and carry on are from the south. they are ignorant, they have no teeth, they have no brains, and i'm so ashamed of them. i am so glad i do not live in the south. thank you. host: barbara? barbara's gone. in "the washington post" this morning grassley is the talk of town halls. this is by perry bacon who writes about the town hall meetings of senator charles grassley, the ranking member in the senate finance committee. "conservative activists mobilized early sending urgent e-mail alerts asking republicans to show up at meetings." some iowans, explained someone who strongly opposes the health care reform effort wonders if grassley is wandering off the reservation. curt, what's on your mind this morning? caller: thank god for c-span. i want to talk about the health care system. i am an immigrant. and since i come here, my wife have insurance. i don't use it, because i don't normally get sick, but she uses it a lot. man, i'm telling you, the bills are -- they are so craz
news and to disrupt -- rush limbaugh and to disrupt the organized campaigns. you noticed that most of the disruption is in democratic town halls. they are not disrupting republican town halls. that let's you know it is planned. unfortunately like this last lady said, they are usually older people who are already on socialize medicare and either don't realize they are on socialized medicine already. texting host: thank you, jamie. a common from teresa from twitter. peaceably assemble. " the new york times" on the front-page reports on how people start their day with waking up and getting on line first. coffee can wait, the day's first stop is on line. i will pull this and just read a piece of the story. the surge in early risers is reflected an on line and wireless traffic patterns. internet companies that used to watch traffic levels rise only when people booted up at work now see the uptick much earlier. a boston company that analyzes internet use says web traffic and the united states gradually decline to midnight until 6:00 a.m. on the east coast and then a huge morning caffeine
yesterday was asked -- most of those questions come from r ush limbaugh and others like an. she was his plan and others with her that they work mis informed -- this is not even in the bill. then, when he answered that question for them instead of them listening they were screaming and hollering. how can in would have a discussion if they do not listen to one another's opinions? host: on the republican line from philadelphia. caller: you do a great job, young lady. my comment is about the history of recession. the democrats created the first recession in 1937. there was a tariff act from 1890 that was signed into law by president harrison. the act included among other items, taxing opium and marijuana at $10 per pound. you have the fbi in the 1930's who created so much propaganda against people who believe these things who believe these things should not exist anymore, going up to the prohibition. i am a muslim who supported over cleveland twice. we will continue to boycott any body who wants to be like ronald reagan. thank you. host: today in "the usa today" they note that president obama wi
that rush limbaugh made the other day about the democratic party and nazis -- every point he made with either misleading or false. we need a strong republican party to keep democrats in line. if we do not have a sensible republican party, we will get the opposite of what we had during the bush administration. that is where the democratic party failed to exercise their checks and balance responsibilities. it is the
gates well enough to know -- the most surprising thing about hearing rush limbaugh and these guys go off, want to tell them president obama and professor gates might no way more than the most of the rest of us. [laughter] we are giving you the best we have. this is the very best we have, intellectually personally, and in their sense of wanting to bridge socially and personally and intellectually. if you reject them, if they are labeled as militant or radical or racist, there is no hope. >> what i know is i knew my role on the streets of detroit. i know while i met the crib, yes sir, no sir, at that is what you think, yes sir. intellectually, i am raising a finger at him, but i understand you have to show your young kids not to pave the way professor gates did. you don't have a harvard pedigree and you don't have barack obama as your friend. you be quiet and silent until you can assert your man had later on. not testosterone, black survival. that's what the real deal is. [applause] i do think we are trying to look at a macro situation through a micro lens. you talk about somebody's mamma,
limbaugh, he makes fun of the left. daily kos is good about beating and conservatives. most of you do not live in washington, d.c. or new york. you live somewhere else and so you don't have to cut it as cocktail parties and be beaten down all the time. the second thing i encourage you to do is to get the tools. there is no excuse for not having the tools. get the training. it's not enough to come to one conference and think that you now know everything that there is. it is a constant learning process. i am always striving to be a better writer. go read books. i would encourage you to get the logistical tools, whether a black bearing ore and i found allies you to videotape things -- you know, like town hall meetings? a video camera might come in handy at those events. tweet from your hand-held device. everyone should be doing that. you should all be on twitter. no. 3 is, to get network. there are a lot people in this room that you need to know. get to know them. this is a non-partisan think so there are libertarian groups. but a couple of people from the nrc see are here today, get to
are dying every day because of that. >> if that all wasn't enough, conservative radio host rush limbaugh is fanning the flames by making analogies comparing president obama to adolf hitler. on his radio show yesterday, he said, quoting here, the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika logo. that prompted strong words from the white house. >> i think any time you make references to what happened in germany in the '30s and '40s, i think you're talking about an event that has low quibbling. and i think any time anyone ventures to repair anything to that, they're on thin ice. and it's best ndenot deployed. >> so everyone's all fired up here. so asking what do you think about this, how everything's all ramped up in this debate about health care and the town hall meeting. so i posted this question on my facebook page. got a huge response. this is what hal wrote -- i think people are fed up with no answers, answers. they want real answers to real questions and they're not getting them. that's why hal thinks the protesters are really getting rally at these town halls. allison wro

. that is one of the reasons they hate rush limbaugh so much because they --, because he makes fun of liberals so much. one of the reasons blockers are effective is most of you don't live in washington. you live somewhere else, you don't have to go to those cocktail parties and be beaten down all the time. i also want to encourage you to get the tools. i mean get training. it is not enough to come to one conference and think that you now know everything there is. everybody is learning. i am always striving to be a better writer. go to conferences, read books. i would encourage you to get the logistical tools come a blackberry or an iphone that allows you to videotape things like town hall meetings. a video camera might come in handy in one of those events. everybody in this room should be on twitter. no. 3 is get the networks. -- is guilty networkeet network. i know a couple of people from a nrcc are here today. get to know them. if you are a republican, they can plug you in paris state principled. conservative blogger is make a mistake of siding with the bush administration whether it was med
is to demoralize and mock your opponents. that's why they hate rush limbaugh so much because he makes fun of the left. the daily coats have been good at defeating. most of you don't love in washington, d.c. o'new york. you live somewhere else and you don't have to go to cocktail parties and be beaten down all the time. the second thing is, get the tools. no excuse for not having the tools. i mean get training. it's not enough to come to one conference and think you know everything there is. i'm always striving to be a better writer. you can do that, too. go to conferences and read books. get the logistical tools, a blackberry or iphone that allows you to videotape things. a video camera might come in handy or audio record and tweet from your havend held device. you should all be on twitter. get net worked. there are a lot of people you need to know. get net worked with them. know who they are. i know this is a nonpartisan thing. there is a democratic party, but i do know that a couple of folks from the nrcc are here today, get to know them because if you are republican, they can plug you
